In this episode, we sit down with George Weigel, the distinguished senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and one of our permanent research fellows at the ND Center for Ethics and Culture. We talk about several of his books including his most recent, "Lessons In Hope: My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II," 2004's "Letters to a Young Catholic," and his wonderful Lenten vademecum from 2013, "Roman Pilgrimage: The Station Churches."
